      Why Haifa?

I chose Haifa because it meant being in one place and getting to know people all from all over the world; different languages, cultures, religions and backgrounds. All of them made have made a great difference in my experience, and thanks to them, I am richer than the day before and each day is full of new surprises and learning experiences.


What do you like most about Haifa?

Haifa University offers a high level of education. Classes are inspiring and amazing, and being able to take language courses has helped me to live my experience fully. Haifa is definitely my home, far away from home.

Thank you Haifa, thank you Israel!
